Operation Write Home Memorial Day BlogHop

memdaybloghop_2014



Welcome to the Operation Write Home Memorial day Bloghop. If you would like to start at the beginning of the hop, click on the picture above and it will take you to the links on the OWH Stars and Stamps blog.   I hope you are having fun hopping along and viewing some fabulous creations by our fellow OWHers!  Here is my card for the hop!


Our Theme for the Hop is Red, White and Blue made as Love Cards, Missing You Cards, Thank You Cards, Birthday Cards or Any Hero Cards with a written message inside.  As I was digging through my formidable paper stash (ahem!) I found this Authentique Glory Kit with the flowers made out of hearts.  I knew I just had to cut one out and use it. I used OWH Sketch 54.  The  kit even came with the cute word stickers to make the sentiment.  So -- not one stamp was used making this card.  Unusual for me!  Ribbon is Really Reasonable Ribbon.  Click on the picture at the top of the post to get back to the BlogHop Linkys!

Happy Crafting!
Donna

  2. Great use of papers and stash. I find it quite challenging to not use a single stamp on my cards, not even for the sentiment! You did great with this card!
